The names may not mean much on the other side of the Atlantic but bear with me. Last week here in the UK the Labour Party’s shadow chancellor, Alan Johnston, resigned and was replaced by Ed Balls. Or, as one commentator remarked:


"Johnston out, Balls in."

Dick Sweat ran for US Senate (1998) in NH. I'd drive around laughing like a 4th grader. Why didn't he use a different variation.

Me too. Aren't we silly?
In junior high I had a math teacher whose last name was Zucker. Her husband’s name was Richard.

You know it - just wish my body would age as slowly as my mind!

the sun, the moon, the stars
is that what you're thinking that you are
as I disintegrate over time
if I expect my body to keep up with my mind

Try and get a rise from an atrophied muscle,
And the nerves in your thigh just quivers and fizzles
So you know, that you're over the hill
When your mind makes a promise that your body can't fill

Then there's the realtor who showed our house in the States: Gay Horney. Frequent scene during the rental process. Doorbell: Ding dong! I open the door. Sheepish looking person blurts out: "Um, are you Gay Horney?"
